Ave Maria Crucifix Plans On Hold

Ave Maria University, a right-wing Catholic university near Naples, Florida, had planned to build the world’s largest crucifix, a “60-foot red-tinted glass and aluminum cross with a 40-foot body of Christ,” to go with its “landmark massive Catholic church.” Unfortunately, “even with the church open for worship, the crucifix’s construction appears to be a long way away.” Tom Monaghan, founder of Domino’s Pizza and chancellor of Ave Maria, explains: “There’s still hope for that. The money has to be there.”
